Tom Cat's blog --- 2 more sleeps and TC should be back. He says he is feeling better but is cognisant of the need to take care.

Puzzle — 3:12 Cute kitten, but then I've never met a kitten that wasn't cute!

MoveOn — I'd agree with that. As you say, add the 99%.

TPM — I propose that the Congress claw back previously disbursed disaster relief from the districts that these bozos represent and see how they like the political fallout. After all, if they are opposed to disaster relief, it should be equitable.

MSNBC — Only deck someone Patty? I wanted to reach out and choke the living shit out of a bunch of the hecklers. I too am not a violent person, actually quite the opposite. But when the father of an extremely young murder victim comes to give his testimony, he deserves respect, and that was not evident.

Cartoon — I remember the Tet Offensive from the news, but being Canadian, I was more removed. This from Wikipedia:

"Although the offensive was a military defeat for the communists, it had a profound effect on the US government and shocked the US public, which had been led to believe by its political and military leaders that the communists were, due to previous defeats, incapable of launching such a massive effort."

I'd agree with the Thomas Friedman quote – but I think it may have missed out women and (in general) anyone who isn't part of the 1% even if they deludedly voted for the GOP/TP…. the Far Right really are far gone in dementia!

I couldn't listen to the MSNBC video – I felt too nauseated at the very thought of someone heckling a father whose innocent little child had been gunned down!

Good to know you'll soon be better again TC – but take it easy please – we'd prefer to wait and get you really well!

The hecklers only proved what stupid, heartless sobs they are - if anything, they prove that we need gun safety badly!

Thanks Lynn for sharing TomCat blog posting.
Move on: nope the GOP sure can't.
TPM: I noticed my looney of a Senator (Portman) voted against the relief bill.
MSNBC: The hecklers just shows how crazy the pro-gun people are.
Great cartoon but a date I would like not be reminded of.
